Dan,

My point was to show the strength of Tilden even in his later years. He did defeat Budge, Vines, Nusslein in tournaments when he was over forty.

Hoad for example often even in losses to Gonzalez showed how strong he was. The Hoad that lost to Gonzalez on tour 36 to 51 showed great strength. Hoad probably would have defeated just about anyone on a head to head tour playing at that level.

Hard to evaluate. Possibly but maybe not.
